Support for Victory Junction Gang Camp-- BLV Motorsports will run a special decal scheme on the #40 EMP/Dodge this weekend in support of Victory Junction Gang Camp.  The tribute is part of an awareness campaign aimed at helping Kyle and Pattie Petty generate attention and increase charitable donations for the camp which marks its Official Construction Kick-Off in Randleman, N.C. next month.  Information about tax free contributions can be obtained by calling 1-877-854-2267 or logging on to www.victoryjunction.org

Brian on his first race at Kansas -- "We didn't get an opportunity to test for the upcoming race. However, we're looking for a good run after our 13th place finish at Dover. The team is working really well and we have the car performing much better. I like the high speeds that we carry on the track; I adapt to that really well. The team also has worked hard on their pit stop strategy, so that will be a big plus this weekend when we travel to Kansas City."

Kansas City here we come -- Crew Chief Bryant Frazier was extremely happy with the EMP Dodge team last week at Dover. Frazier stated, "We are going to another fast track, which Brian loves, along with the momentum to keep things moving. We are taking the same car that we ran at Richmond in the spring and finished 7th, so I am expecting another good run this weekend. The guys on the team have put a tremendous amount of work into the overall operation and with high morale and good team work, we will have success."

BLV Motorsports scheduled to race  -- The next scheduled race (of 24) for BLV Motorsports is October 12 at Lowes Motor Speedway.  The team will use this time away from the track to continue to build on their momentum and polish their skills.

2003 Partnership Opportunities  -- The BLV Motorsports team is actively seeking sponsorship for the 2003 campaign. BLV and Brian Vickers have successfully competed in a select schedule in 2002 and are excited about the opportunity to race next year in the Busch Series Points Championship. According to a team spokesperson, "We believe our organization has a tremendous amount to offer the right type of marketing partner(s). We have an 18 year-old with a bright future: the youngest current driver in the sport and someone who has already proven his ability to drive these racecars successfully against drivers and teams with significantly more resources and experience. We have also built a quality program, including a young, motivated staff, first-class facilities/equipment and marketing/business support that rivals any other Busch or Winston Cup program."
